Description Felix Botner univentionstaff 2018-03-14 13:03:03 CET
Seems that the appcenter does not run apt-get update before installing package based apps. I think we should do that to update the package lists (that may have been changed due to errata updates).

This is only the case for UCS Components. Package bases Apps add a new repository and of course do an apt-get update.

apt-get update takes its time, so I thought it would save time for the user. Installing errata updates also does an apt-get update somewhere.

What exactly was the problem here? The installation status shown? Or really the installation of an App?

Because in UCS 4.3, this is done by "apt-get" directly. Even the python-apt cache should not need to be reopened for that.

I prioritized based on the assumption that this was only a display issue.
